Bull Terrier Rescue places bull terriers in homes in northern and central California and charges an adoption fee that covers vet care for the animals in the shelter, neutering and spaying costs, kennel space and feeding. Volunteers may open their homes to foster bull terrier puppies for free. Foster owners are responsible for feeding, training and socializing the animals. As of October 2015, BullTerrierRescue.org reports that foster homes and volunteers to help transport rescued dogs through the state are both urgently needed.
Bull Terrier Club of America Rescue is the official animal welfare group of the Bull Terrier Club of America and supports adoptions of the breed throughout the United States. The rescue vaccinates the animals and gives them heartworm tests, and these services are supported by the organization's adoption fees. However, its foster care program releases dogs to temporary homes for free. The rescue is responsible for the costs of medical care, equipment and food for fostered animals, making fostering a more affordable way to care for bull terrier puppies.
Another way to find bull terrier puppies is to search online listings at sites such as PetFinder.com. Searches may yield adoptable puppies for free, though in nearly every case there is an adoption fee. Dog lovers may also find fostering opportunities through local shelters.Learn more about Dogs
